Happy Fourth of July everyone! While it is easy to get rapped up in the fun and festivities, we also have to stop and remember what we are celebrating. The 4th of July is a celebration of our country gaining its freedom. In today’s world of scary, horrifying stories constantly being streamed across the news, we have to stop and remember all of those who have worked to protect our country and the rights that we are given. While it may sometimes seem that America is in a bit of chaos, you also have to look on the bright side and realize all of the great things that make our nation so special. After traveling out of the country quite a bit recently and reflecting on those travels I have a new found appreciation for our nation and am proud to be an American.
I hope that your day was filled with family and friends, relaxation, and enjoying each other’s company! (Oh and if your day was anything like mine it was also filled with a ton of sweets! 😉
